I set a break pointer at write_region() in fileio.c and then perform
the save-buffer command.  When emacs breaks at write_region() on 24.5
the file's permission is changed to writable while on 25.0.91 the
permission remains read-only.  I will trace in lisp from save-buffer
to write-region on each version to find how this permission difference
is made.
